  1. Thank you guys for your words and suggestions. I have reached out to the university and they have given me an admission deferral form to fill out, so I have sent that in and now I am just waiting to see if it will be approved or denied. If I can get the approval, then I can start in Fall 2022 instead of Fall 2021 and by then I will have had the operation.
  2. Basically, I have been accepted to a doctoral degree program. It’s the right degree to get a job doing what I want to be doing. I’m extremely happy about it. It is in a different state than the one I currently live in, so accepting the offer would mean moving. Now, here come the issues. I currently work full time and I have health insurance. I am in the process of preparing to get a surgery done. For privacy reasons, I won’t go into detail about the exact surgery, but this surgery is not literally life or death, but would be extremely life improving for me. Right now, it feels like getti
  3. Anyone else here considering deferring / wanting to defer for a year? I was accepted somewhere, but didn't get funding. I would ideally like to work for 1 more year full time to earn more money, so I won't have to really take out loans. I'm wondering if it's typically possible to defer a doctoral level program or if that's really only for undergraduates? And then of course there is the covid issue. I'm not sure if the school will be back in person by the time fall 2021 starts and i don't really want to pay full price for virtual college. lol.
  4. School: NYU Type: PhD; Counseling Acceptance/Waitlist/Rejection: Rejection Of Course Type of Notification: Email to check portal Date Notified: March 4
  5. Got my official rejection from the Counseling Psych PhD program at NYU. I knew it was coming, so it was good to finally have the confirmation!
  6. Yeah, I got back in touch with UCR and they said they will be sending out decisions from March - May apparently.
  7. Do you know if they are NASP accredited at all? If so, then it might be less of a huge 'gamble' in that, if they are NASP accredited and worst case scenario they didn't get the APA accreditation, you would still have a career as a regular school psychologist to fall back on, if that makes sense. For me, I would look into that as a deciding factor. When is their application deadline by the way.
  8. I sent an email to ask about my status at a couple of programs. I am fairly certain I was rejected from both of them, but just wanted final confirmation. Here are the responses they sent back, in case anyone else still hasn't heard back from either of these schools. They both basically told me a whole lot of nothing. lol. UC Riverside (School Psychology): Thank you for contacting Graduate Admissions at the University of California, Riverside (UCR). To answer your question(s): Please note that during this time each academic program receives a large volume of applications and applic
  9. I'm not 100% sure yet that i will accept it. Still waiting to hear from 1 more school. But I have to say, I was genuinely impressed with the other students that I interviewed with (maybe you were one of them). I would be excited to be classmates with any of them! Congrats to you as well.
  10. Just wait until you get the follow up email. It will have more details. Mine came about 2 days after the portal update.
  11. Wondering if anyone has heard anything from the St. John's University PsyD program? I was invited for the interview, but haven't gotten an admissions decision yet. It's still very early, I know. Just wondering if decisions are going out yet.
  12. Accepted into University of Colorado PsyD!
  13. In all honesty, if I were in your position, I would just wait it out. I would not contact the program about it because I feel like it would come off a bit wrong. Things get misinterpreted over email and I wouldn't want to take the chance. Chances are, you WILL hear from the other programs by March 15.
  14. If it's not mentioned on the school's website at all, I wouldn't send it because they probably don't want it. If it says on the website that it's optional, then I would definitely send it because I think it will be taken into account and your score is not a bad score. What school are you applying to?
  15. I have some questions regarding the NASP convention from those who have been before. I did not attend last year, but I'm thinking of going this year. Anyway, one question I have is how beneficial is the convention for students? Those who have attended, did you feel like there was a lot there for you or was it really more about those who are already practicing? Is there a lot of opportunity to look for internships / jobs at the convention? Do they have tables there for it (sort of like a job fair situation)? One of the main reasons I would like to go is so that I can network with som
